Dr. Cox completed a septoplasty and turbinoplasty procedure on my nose in December and this was my 3 month follow up appointment (but actually 6 months because of COVID19). He answered any questions I had in regards to regaining complete feeling back, he is very attentive when listening, and very respective of your time and appointment. I have always enjoyed my appointments with Dr. Cox and his assistant, Claire, because they are always so nice and actually there for the patient’s needs. I have already referred some friends and family to him, if they choose to correct a deviate septum.

Starting from the pre-op diagnosis through surgery and post-op care, Dr. Cox has been outstanding. He has been caring, compassionate, and kind, and his medical care has been first class. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
